LOS ANGELES -The Hub, a television network for kids and their families, will kick off its fall rollout of new and returning original series with the second-season premiere of the network's popular one hour family game show "Family Game Night" featuring two new back-to-back, one hour episodes Friday, September 2 (7 p.m. & 8 p.m. ET).

Hosted by Daytime Emmy(R) nominee Todd Newton, the Hasbro Studios-produced series returns with all new challenges based on classic games such as "Simon" and "Trouble" added to gameplay, as well as brand new original challenges, in a larger-than-life environment that is bigger, better, and more exciting than ever. Within each episode, two families compete head-to-head playing outrageous versions of the most beloved and iconic board games, challenging both contestants and viewers with strategy, creativity and pure luck for the chance to win cash, prizes and awesome family vacations.

Just three days after the premiere, The Hub will celebrate Labor Day and the second season launch with a special marathon of nine back-to-back, favorite episodes of "Family Game Night," Monday, September 5 (10 a.m. -7 p.m. ET).

To usher in the new season of "Family Game Night," on September 2, The Hub is hosting a sweepstakes during that day's episodes (7 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET) and during the September 9 episode (7 p.m. ET.) During the sweepstakes, viewers will have an opportunity to call in to win the same Grand Prize as the TV contestants on those episodes. Supplemental prizes include five $1,000 awards.
